College of Environmentla Design graduate student Jeremy Halpern (M.C.P./M.S. Civil and Environmental Engineering '21) was selected as an Eno Fellow by the Eno Center for Transportation to participate in the 27th annual Eno Future Leaders Development Conference in Washington, D.C. Halpern was nominated along with Transportation Engineering doctoral students Jessica Lazarus and Emma Lucken. The Eno Future Leaders Development Conference provides a first-hand look at how transportation policy is developed and implemented. Eno Fellows will also have the opportunity to meet with top government officials, leaders of associations, and members of Congress and their staff. The conference allows participants to see how the nation's transportation policies are debated, shaped, formed, and ultimately adopted and applied.
Halpern earned his B.S. in Civil Engineering at Northwestern University. He is currently completing the Transportation Dual Masters program for City Planning and Transportation Engineering at UC Berkeley, where he studies bus rapid transit project delivery, travel demand modeling, and the development of emerging mobility partnerships to serve older adults and people with disabilities. He is advised by Professor Emerita Betty Deakin and Professor Daniel Rodríguez.
The Eno Center for Transportation (Eno) was founded in 1921 by William Phelps Eno (1859-1945), who pioneered the field of traffic management in the United States and Europe. Mr. Eno sought to promote safe mobility by ensuring that traffic control became an accepted role of government and traffic engineering a recognized professional discipline. The Eno Center focuses on all modes of transportation, with the mission of cultivating creative and visionary leadership for the sector.
